The first significant winter storm of the season is impacting many across the Dakotas and Minnesota. Blizzard conditions are ongoing as winds increase to over 30 to 40 mph across this region, where temperatures have plummeted to below average.
Heavy rain is falling on the warmer side of this storm system and eventually will swing through the Northeast by the early weekend, prompting the Weather Prediction Center to issue a marginal risk -- level 1 of 4 -- for excessive rain Friday.
This strengthening and wide-ranging weather system will move east from Omaha, Nebraska, to New York City. Meanwhile, the West is experiencing an atmospheric river.
This storm system will usher in enough cold air to create snow and strong winds. This snowstorm is forecast to continue across the upper Midwest Friday.
"Much of the Upper Midwest is under some sort of winter alert as the season's first significant snowfall is forecast.
Total snow accumulations will range from only 2 to 6 inches. But the winds will gust as high as 60 mph, creating whiteout conditions in portions of the Plains.
A blizzard warning is in place until midday Friday and covers most of northeast South Dakota.
"Travel should be restricted to emergencies only," says the National Weather Service.
"A large and energetic low pressure system that has brought snow and high winds across the northern Plains and upper Midwest will steadily weaken today as it moves across the Great Lakes and then retreats into Canada tonight.," the Weather Prediction Center says.
This weekend, another storm will hit southern Canada and bring a swath of snow to larger Midwest cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit and Cleveland.
